“We ask that all should be mindful at this time of all who were impacted by the pandemic and especially to remember our frontline staff who worked so hard over the past 15 months” he added. The Tinahely Agricultural Show’s enthusiastic committee are committed to holding the best show ever on bank holiday Monday 1st August 2022.
